    Some more art from Josh Nizzi. Including a what appears to be an early version of Roadbuster. Same robot design, but different Nascar and name-WARPATH!

    the names were used to throw people off. After all, Shockwave's listed as Blitzwing.

    It also says 'Breakdown' for Soundwave. And Leadfoot is listed as Flash. Hatchet is listed as Dirtbag, Crankcase is Dreadwind and Crowbar is Hooligan.

    If someone could mirror the images, that'd be nice. The site is all kinds of broke for me.

    Six dreads would have been cool. Hatchet, Crowbar and Crankcase for the Highway scene, then three identical ones for Chicago; Dirtbag, Dreadwind and Hooligan. Hasbro missed the chance to put out another 3 re-releases with minor changes to the deco.
    Go figure.

    Damn, these are fantastic. And the Wreckers also give us an idea of what the scrapped racetrack scene in Washington was supposed to be about. NASCAR race event that's disrupted by a Decepticon attack, the Wreckers arrive and kick ass even before they've scanned an altmode. If I'm right, it could have made a great debut for them.

    also wondering this... I didn't read a lot of pre-movie talk to avoid spoilers, but didn wonder why the Wreckers were Nascar cars (besides obvious promotional opportunities, natch)

    And another interesting red herring name: Megatron is listed in some imagesas "Cyclonus"

    I don't think that Roadbuster was actually called Warpath. All these guys have code names. Shockwave was called Blitzwing, but it's obvious he was designed from the beginning to be Shockwave. Same with Soundwave being named differently in the concept art. They were just code names to prevent leaks. It worked with Dino apparently: We had a leak he was called Rush, but it was obviously a code name.

    Heard it back when the scenes in Washington were still being filmed. They tried to get permission to film a race scene that would run around the entirety of the Washington Mall, but the city ended up denying them for a number of reasons. The concept art makes it look like the Wreckers would have made their debut there, because as far as I know, there wasn't any other race-sequence planned.

    I really hope if they make another movie that more wreckers are introduced.

    Something tells me we'll be getting a Roadbuster repaint down the road lol. I wonder what the name will be since warpath was in the game?

    Edit: Sandstorm perhaps?

    He was NEVER Warpath. They are all fake names.
